Shaker style cabinets are very simple, clean, which makes them highly suitable not only for traditional inspired kitchens but for modern and contemporary kitchen settings.
This type of kitchen cabinet style is commonly used for traditional and transitional style kitchens. It is usually found in rustic and country inspired homes and kitchens. Its appearance can be ornate or simple and can vary depending on which period style it gains inspiration from. One form of raised panel kitchen cabinets is the cathedral cabinet door or the raised arch design (which is also classified under the traditional kitchen cabinet style).
Flat panel kitchen cabinets usually come in a solid wood or a decorative laminate finish. Using solid wood for a flat panel kitchen cabinet design showcases the raw, natural beauty of wood, without any need for an additional decor or ornamentation. However, if the project is leaned towards a more budget friendly option, decorative wood laminates can be used in order to mimic the appearance of real wood. Laminated flat panel kitchen cabinets also offer a wide variety of colors, designs and patterns to choose from, allowing you to create the perfect kitchen cabinet design that matches your personal taste and preference in style.
